Abstract/Description

To improve the overall outcome of the patient or athlete, certain interventions are necessary, depending on the individual, in addition to the rehabilitation treatment. Exposure to additional interventions such as mental imagery, goal setting, positive self-talk, and social support from athletic trainers, have shown to have a impact on the outcome of the athlete at the end of the treatment. If the athlete does not have the confidence to return to play after completing rehab, all of the work both the athlete and athletic trainer did will be of no use as the player will not be in the right mindset to trust their abilities again. A lack of adherence to rehabilitation and an elongated recovery time will come as a result from a negative mindset after the initial injury. My study will look at the attitudes of colligate athletes going into or during physical therapy and its effect of those attitudes on the outcome of the rehabilitation in college athletes.
